Throughout #milemadness I have said that the best way to learn more about how things work is through relationships, and we thought a great way to start new friendships and share ideas would be a gathering. Therefore, we are proud to announce the #milemadness ‘DO’. This is an event to celebrate the March Milemadness event that brought together innovative bloggers from a vast array of backgrounds under the common goal – to become the Champion of Manufactured Spending, or at least to have fun trying. The event will kick off with talks from some of the most well regarded experts in the manufactured spending and travel community, both who have blogs, and who ‘fly under the radar’. We will be keeping this a fairly small affair, so if you are interested in attending and meeting like minded people, I highly recommend that you act fast!
- When: Saturday May 10th, from 11am onwards
- Where: Hyatt House Charlotte, nearest airport CLT
HYATT house Charlotte Center City, 435 East Trade Street, Charlotte, NC 28202

We will have a number of other people sharing some of their own insights and ideas either formally via a presentation, or informally during the event. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the people that are creating the content that you read on a daily basis, and ask the questions that are on your mind. Having met most of the people who are attending from the player side I know that you will enjoy the experience and find it a great place to bounce new ideas around with the people that attend.
Also attending: Michelle from Miles, Points and Maitais; Nick from PFDigest; Freequent FlyerBook blog. Attendance is subject to change, and we hope to have a few more people join the event also.
Lunch will be included in the ticket price, and will be served during the first section of the Milemadness Celebration. We will also announce for the first time who the final champion is, as we would have time to confirm which points posted and which ideas didn’t live up to expectations.
After lunch – An Amazing Race!
After the presentations, lunch and awards we are planning to host an Amazing Race style competition, the bloggers and players of MileMadness will join forces with you to build a team style event, details to come soon. Participation is voluntary.
Cocktails and Canapes
After some time to refresh and relax we will reconvene for a Cocktail hour, with Passed Canapés, the first couple of drinks are on us, and then it will become a cash bar if necessary. This will be a wonderful networking opportunity and a chance to share stories from your own experiences. We will also give out a prize for ‘Funniest Story’ from the afternoons Manufactured Spending activities.
Dinner plans are open, we will figure that out on the fly with our new friends, and are optional, they aren’t included in the ticket price.
Ticket Price $75 Per Person for the day, includes Presentations, Networking opportunities, Lunch and Cocktail hour. Earlybird Special – for those who book before the end of #milemadness at Midnight EST March 31st a discounted price of $65 per person is available. Space is limited. Please note that due to prepaid expenses we will not issue refunds for tickets for cancellations that occur within 7 days of the event. Tickets are transferable.
I hope to see you all at the ‘DO’ and very much look forward to meeting you and talking about ideas and strategies for optimizing manufactured spending, travel and personal finances.
